rand that attracts such a, such a strong reaction? >> guest: well, there's a great moral clarity to her point of view. it's an extremely consistent philosophy. it's a romantic philosophy that draws many young people because it's a world where the good guys in these stories are very passionate, creative, focused, empowered people who know who they are and go out in the world and want to do the things they want to do. in the case of john galt, he wanted to shut down the world in order to rebuild it, but that was his passion. and so young people trying to rediscover themselves, trying to understand what is their role in life, what role models do i have, ayn rand's books, the big ones, are just full of these amazing role models. business people, artists, architects, bankers, lawyers, doctors, all of whom follow this philosophy of extreme individualism.
